Thanks for posting the buffet menu for games today, cad. Some good match-ups.

I think over the last three or four seasons the GUB has become a great one-stop shopping spot for game info, info on standings, rankings, RPI and stuff. Great & fun resource to turn to for almost all things college basketball. Thanks to everyone for pitching in !!

Nice job, Cad. I knew today would be a good day, but I had no idea it was that good.

Does Wazzu have a chance at knocking off Stanford at home? Probably not, but one can dream.

Can Pepp hang with SMC on the road?

Will Dook get their third loss in two weeks? I hope so.

On the 7:00 am edition of College Game Day, Reece, Jay, Seth, and Jay Will spent the last five minute segment discussing the Zags chances to reach the FF. Props given to Few, Wiltjer, GBJ, Pangos, the Davenport Hotel, Zags offense, Zags D. . .

How cool is it that Gonzaga has been and will remain part of the national college hoops conversation ?

It's always a great day to be a Zag; after viewing the discussion above, it's just a smidge better.

Thanks for the list, but now I am unlikely to get much done today.

RenoZag
01-31-2015, 07:40 AM
And.....? What was the prognosis by those Durham educated geniuses?

Paraphrasing here, jazz:

Seth thinks the Zags have the horses to do it this year; even if they don't, Zags are a great program and should be for a long time. He suggested the senior guards, especially a healthy Pangos, were part of the recipe for making a deep tourney run. He had high praise for Sabonis and Wiltjer also.

Bilas called Few a HOF coach; he brought up the UCLA and Wichita State games and suggested the Zags might have already had two FF appearances were it not for those games. He described GU as "major basketball power, not a mid major." He suggested this year's team D might be enough to get them to the FF. Bilas acknowledged that until GU reaches a FF, there will be loud noise from the doubters.

Williams admitted he wasn't sold on the Zags at the start of the year; he and Greenberg have been debating the Zags off and on since the season began. He singled out Wiltjer and Kyle's improvement since his transfer. He said he has seen enough of them to change his mind and thinks they are a FF capable squad.

I don't recall which talking head brought up this point: Will the WCC have the Zags ready to succeed in March? Zags played a strong OOC schedule to offset it (and the Zags are good enough now to insist upon--and receive-- home & home series with top notch competition) and perhaps the Zags have a chip on their shoulder this year to silence the critics who question the pedigree of their W - L record.

Ultimately, jazz, they all agreed that this edition of the Zags is the best ever and has an excellent chance to be a FF team. Nothing earth-shattering. Pretty typical banter for College Game Day IMO.

Great win for St. Joseph's. Jay Bilas, just this morning on ESPN Game Day was saying that Davidson is definitely a Cinderella team, and one to really watch the rest of the year. Way to go St Joe. Also a very good win by St. John's over Providence at home. I watched that game and enjoyed it. Always good to see St. John's win. They've lost so many this year.....

Go Zags!!!

NC State wins a barn burner in OT. GTech had the ball up two with 5 seconds left, missed both free throws. NC State rebounded the ball and Trevor Lacey made a 28 foot 3-point shot at the buzzer to win 81-80.

#15 Iowa St is THEE darkhorse candidate for F4.

Every single Cyclones game I catch, I'm blown away how good they look at every position.

A poor-man's Kentucky.

They are aggressive man. They fly for rebounds, pass the rock beautifully, and can score inside and out.

I've watched a ton of College Bball this season they are, by far, my most underrated squad. Look every bit as good as most Top-10 teams, if not better.

They look the part, play the part, and their stats back them up.

Currently rank Top-20 in PPG, APG, FG%, effective O & D, etc.

Impressive group Coach Hoiberg has assembled.

They are predicted to match up with our Zags in Sweet 16. I want NO part of this darkhorse group, not to mention they may have the most athletic PF in the Nation. Gulp.

I plan on them advancing to at least the Elite 8, been thinking this for a few weeks now, finally had to share.

They've never lost a game by more than single digits, only dropped games on the road, and have impressive wins over #9 Kansas, #14 WVU, #18 Arkansas, #19 Texas, Iowa, Okie St, etc. They recently lost to #20 Baylor by 1 @ Baylor.

I like everything about them, a squad built to upset folks.

I'm switching back and forth between the Alabama/Kentucky game and the Duke/Virginia game. I can't emphasize enough how tired I am of how Kentucky is allowed to guard the ball handler with two hands touching! On the other hand, I hope that the SEC ref's continue to allow them to do it, because I doubt that they'll get away with it in the tournament and it will mess with their heads.

Gaels missed Bright and Naar was hobbled too. Waldow had a great game but he would probably tell you he should have made his FT's. Pepp was opportunistic and had a better day. It happens. Good luck to your Gaels, Nevada.

I would have zero issue with any voter who left Virginia at #2.

I agree. If Duke had not got brained in the parking lot at Notre Dame, I think they might've jumped us.

As it stands, we have one loss, UVA has one loss, and I don't think they get punished for losing at home to a wounded Duke team.

Honestly, if it were me, we stay 3, Duke stays 4, and the top 2 stay the top 2. And, I think that's how it will play out. Maybe if we just drill Memphis by 30 it might change up, but . . .

And guys, be nice to Don - he's a good guy and his team just splashed into lake NIT. Not good throwing him an anvil.

I second this. I don't think there is any meaningful difference between numbers 2 and 3 at this stage of the season. However, I would have been willing to bet the farm that if Duke had beaten ND, it would likely have jumped the Zags this Monday. All that said, I do expect the Zags to be bumped up to Number 2 in both poles.

Yep, a loss to Duke is 'better' than the Zag loss @ Arizona ...... excepting maybe Virginia losing @ home. Then there's SOS too. It'll be an interesting call. Of course ... not counting chickens B4 hatch as Zags do have a game tonight. Hope they destripe the Tigers!

I can't believe my common sense "pals" over here are saying this stuff. What TV feed were you watching? The only real empty seats/section was in the Wave section behind their bench and it was like that the entire game. Come on guys, we lost. I feel bad. Don't make stuff up. You're too good for this.

I think losing Bright was a big factor in your loss...Pep's press wouldn't have been that effective if he could have played...tried to watch the game on the "W" along with the Duke game so don't know if Carter hit any 3's tonight...go get some iodine...it will be alright...we feel for you!

Bob? CDC? GZ? Put that post in the Hall of Fame do not pass go, do not collect $200, put it in!

Ok, well, that's nice of you to compliment him. I'm not sure he'd take it as a compliment. I think they had outside hopes of running he table (excluding us) and getting in, or at least playing in Dayton. That doesn't look like it will happen now.

Oh! And, it ain't good to dog a guy on a loss when our team has yet to play today. We're all going to feel like a bunch of forks in a world of soup if we get beat after throwing out all that to Don.

I disagree that a Duke loss is considered 'better'.... We lost to AZ on the road. VA was at home.
Regardless, if the zags win tonight, it would be unfair to not move them into the #2 ranking. I would be disappointed if they didn't get the #2 ... Bell and Pangos deserve it in their senior year.

Doesn't a loss at home carry more weight then one on the road? Agree the polls make no difference in our seeding BUT UVA was hyped by everyone (including me) and they were beaten at home...SOS does count and that in itself might just keep UVA @ #2...

Still feel we are a top four team just don't know if we should be #3 or #4...

Yeah, that's why I added the 'excepting'. Whatever (wife hates when I say that) we'll be 2, 3 or 4 and more wins than any D1 school this season (if we whallop Memphis) as we've played more games. Regardless of how we fare in poles on Monday I feel the Zags will have a #1 seed (if we win out).

Pepperdine - 67

That is too bad for the Gaels. The WCC may have its highest cumulative RPI ever and still send just one team to the Big Dance.

Pepperdine is definitely a program on the rise. That rivalry might become really interesting in a year.
